10 Years Strong !
The City of Angel’s Community Choirs, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, is an innovative new Choral Arts program in the San Fernando Valley dedicated to enhancing the musical life of singers from ages 6 years and up. A program all to its own, the COACC provides both adult and children’s choir ensembles. Also unique to our organization, the children’s choir program transforms into a musical theater camp during the summer. Our strategic presence in the San Fernando Valley allows residents an opportunity to find a high quality program that is local, and comparable with first rate choral ensembles otherwise located in the city.
Each season begins with a summer musical workshop where our youth engage in a 6 week intensive rehearsal schedule culminating in a Knotts Berry Farm or Disney Showcase. Our season continues with all choirs taking stage at our October Fall Follies Dinner Theater. During a wonderful night of fine dining, our audiences are also treated to exceptional musical theater entertainment with a silent auction. We conclude the calendar year with our December Winter Concert; a favorite among our audiences.
In the spring we have performed various community operas with the Los Angeles Opera. In past years COACC has hosted several Peace Choral Festivals which have honored and raised awareness and money for various charities and causes including the community of Sandy Hook, the University Catholic Center at UCLA, St Ferdinand Church, and the LAPD Devonshire Police Activities League Supporters (PALS). Paid tribute to the families and community of San Bernardino and most recently hosted "The Celebrate the Children" Festival which honored exceptional students in the LA/Ventura area.
In the spring our season culminates with our annual May Spring Concert.
We have had the opportunity to perform in some extraordinary projects and venues such as LA Opera "Noyye's Fludde" and "Jonah and the Whale" at Our Lady of the Angels, Disney's California Adventure Hollywood Back Lot Stage, KCET LA Holiday Celebration at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, EastWest Studio in LA for Disney's Live Dumbo Movie Trailer, Kingdom Heart III World Tour at Dorthy Chandler Pavillion, Hard Rock Cafe Las Vegas and Symphony Hall Phoenix AZ.
